Build parts right the first time with Additive Print. Users can check for distortion, stress and strain regions, predict blade crash and export to Ansys Workbench Additive for advanced post processing analysis. Different level of simulation fidelity allows users to go from quick estimation to detailed thermal analysis.
Eliminate the guesswork with Ansys Additive Print. Get insight into how parts will behave during a build and takes corrective steps to get the parts right the first time.
ADDITIVE PRINT CAPABILITIES
Additive Print helps users eliminate guesswork and hours of wasted time in metal Additive Manufacturing workflows. The easy-to-use yet powerful standalone solution is essential for operators and designers looking to save time and build quality parts.
Additive Print uploads supports generated by other software tools with additional materials (Al357, AlSI10Mg and more) available for high-fidelity thermal simulations.
The latest enhancements include the ability to read build files from machine manufacturers (EOS, SLM) and wizards for transferring results to Ansys Workbench Additive.
Build parts right the first time with Additive Print, enabling you to:
Distortion prediction provides visual insight into how parts will distort during a build. Evaluate your assumptions and enable the successful selection of part orientations and support strategies with Additive Print’s distortion capabilities.
With a graphical visualization of layer-by-layer stress accumulation, predict trends, final residual stress and more throughout your build. Utilizing color maps, Additive Print will predict potential blade crash locations.
Build parts in a single iteration with automatic generation of distortion-compensated STL files.
Additive Print empowers users to predict thermal strain, anisotropic effects and calculate strain patterns.
Additive Print enables you to auto generate supports, helping you predict maximum residual stresses that supports must withstand. Supports are generated using an algorithm that varies the support density for carrying maximum residual stresses. Users are also provided with resulting support structure in an STL file format.
